Exercises on the Italian verb piacere
The Italian verb piacere is used to express that you like
something in Italian. However, the verb itself means to please
and the Italian sentence therefore differs from the English in terms of structure.
piacere = to please
Example: The sentence I like the shirt
would in Italian be mi piace la camicia
- corresponding to the shirt pleases me
Lo Studio Italiano offers a tool allowing you to practice the use of the verb piacere with full user control of the level of difficulty of the exercises. See examples below.
Answer using piacere + dative pronoun
In this type of exercises you are asked to answer the question by inserting the correct form of piacere and the correct dative pronoun. Ex:
ti piace il film? - sì, mi piace molto
You can increase the level of difficulty by allowing both singular (piace) and plural (piacciono) forms of piacere:
Rewrite using piacere + dative pronoun
In this type of execises you are asked to rewrite the sentence using piacere + dative pronoun. Ex:

Marco ama i dolci - a Marco piacciono i dolci
tu ami leggere - a te piace leggere
All the types of exercises above can be mixed as it pleases you. You will find the exercises on piacere under grammar
